gitane super corsa

I just picked up an old one, full campagnolo with handlebar end shifters for 5.00. I am contemplating what to do with it.

Ride it!

You'll probably need to clean and lubricate bearings, chain, derailers, etc. At least give it a try with properly adjusted derailers before you convert it to fixed gear.

OH NOOOO !!!

How could you do THAT to this wonderful rare classic - a bike with an intriguing history at that ???
It's even my size! OH NOOOO ....

69 Gitane Super Corsa

I had left it in the attic for 30 years and the best I could do was to strip it down and repaint and replace the old wheels with new fixed gear hubs. Now I can ride it again and feel a young , skinny kid flying like the wind across the South of France in '73. Even if my neighbors see a crazy old man on a skinny bike!

but

better than going in the trash like so many others
